Hotmail, MSN messenger and Windows Live Spaces downFebruary 17th, 2010 - 1:08 am ICT by admin

Feb 16 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Microsoft’s MSN Messenger and Windows Live Spaces (previously known as MSN Spaces) appear to be offline at the moment. Multiple users reported service errors on Tuesday evening as they tried to login to the popular chat software.
While trying to access the Windows Live Spaces Website ( http://spaces.live.com/ ), it simply shows the message “Service Unavailable” on a blank page with no title. Hotmail.com also gives the same error.
On accessing http://messengersays.spaces.live.com/ an error message “Sorry, Spaces is temporarily unavailable at this time. The service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.” is shown.
At the time of writing, we could not check to see if the reason for the outage was reported on Windows Live Spaces Team Blog ( http://thespacecraft.spaces.live.com/ ) or not, as it too was showing the same “Service Unavailable” error message.
